Controversial Hit? Let Us Know What You Think

We’re not going to comment on the hit one way or another. We love a solid big hit — as long as it is legal, of course — but we also want to campaign for player safety and don’t want anyone out there to be seriously hurt. We wanted to provide the reader with what we know about the situation for you to decide for yourselves and to get a sense of what the fan reaction is to something like this.

The NLL and its franchises certainly hype this sort of stuff up on social media, and we’ve noticed that there has been an incredibly mixed reaction. Some absolutely love it, while others see it as dirty and harmful to player safety. Here are a few reactions:

During the third quarter of the Seals – Thunderbirds game on Saturday, Scott Campbell made a big hit on a Seals player while on defense. This started a bit of a scrap between the two teams Nonkon Thompson and Jeremy Noble getting sent to the penalty box for having their teammate’s back.

Later in the night, Campbell and the Seals’ Brodie Merrill got into an altercation as tensions had built. You can take a look at that battle here:
